After decades of neglect, the pug experienced an upswing. Today, owning a pug is back in fashion and indeed, these cute dogs make wonderful companions. In a good mood, friendly and well-balanced, they like to accompany their owner everywhere.
Of course, pugs aren’t sports aces. This is less due to their physique, which is not that unsportsmanlike, but to their short muzzle, which can be associated with various breathing problems. In the summer, in particular, the pug needs to be protected from excessive heat – especially as a puppy, which can often be quite temperamental. If the temperatures are not too high, the pug is also enthusiastic about longer hikes.
